'Destiny' news: DLC updates for first half of 2016


The promised December update for Bungie’s “Destiny: The Taken King” recently went live, and it brought about a number of nerfs and improvements in Classes and some weapons. It also introduced the time-limited event Sparrow Racing League. Now, with the year closing in, what of the future of “Destiny”? As both developers at Bungie and players welcome a new year, new updates will also be coming to the gamemore content and more new everything, as Bungie has lined up their DLC plans for the next six months already.

Bungie Community Manager Eric “Urk” Osborne took to the Bungie Weekly Update to announce their DLC plans for the future up to the first half of 2016. According to Urk, the first batch of updates and new contents coming to the game will be on a scale close to the “Festival of The Lost” and will be bigger and larger than anything any player had seen since the arrival of “the Taken King” expansion.

As for their DLC plans, Urk also revealed that while they were a bit slow on the interval of the releases of new content for the game, the coming year of 2016 will see them work faster in releasing new content, with their plans from winter 2015 to spring 2016 now all slated.

“It’s true that we’ve updated the playbook based on what we’ve learned to date, and to better tap into what makes Destiny unique,” Urk said. “Last year, we all waited five months and 10 days between content drops after December. This year, the plan is to deliver new experiences at a faster clip. To that end, the updates described above are all currently slated to hit across Winter and Spring of 2016, with more to come, as well.”
